Why is scarification important?

If dead moss and grass stalks are left undisturbed on your lawn they will turn into thatch (a build-up of dead organic matter that lies on the soil surface). Thatch prevents the flow of moisture to the grass roots, and can thus end up weakening and even killing the grass in your garden. During wetter periods – i.e. autumn and winter – it can also create damp, humid conditions that encourage moss growth and promote grass diseases and fungus.

Vigorous lawn scarification will remove thatch from your lawn and allow the grass underneath to grow normally again. If your lawn feels thick and spongy, scarifying your garden may be necessary to remove the layer of thatch.
